Two Live Scalp Trades on the E-mini S&P


» Get the Trade Scalper «

Take a look at the entry, profit targets and stops used to place these two trades on a 1-Min E-mini S&P chart. The triangles near the chart represent the Trade Scalper software entries that help you know exactly when to enter.

For the first trade, John Paul placed a limit order at 1879, the same as the entry signal generated by the Trade Scalper software. John Paul prefers limit orders over market orders to prevent slippage. The profit target, based on the ATR, was three ticks. The stop was at six ticks. This stop loss may raise eyebrows, however, the time-based stop is used more frequently than the six-tick stop. If the ATR with a period value of four is above three ticks, go for three ticks. If it’s ranging from three ticks to two ticks, go for two ticks. If the ATR is below two ticks, don’t trade at all (market is too slow). This price action strategy can be used on a variety of futures and currency markets. No moving averages, stochastics, etc. are used by this method.

The course teaches when to place a trade long or short and the reason why. You wait until the candles plot according to the rules and this confirms the entry. Included with purchase, you’ll get the Trade Scalper software for NinjaTrader, the Trade Scalper digital course (about 100 pages), a live training session, and a recording of this live training session.

Two Live Atlas Line Trades – One Long, One Short

Using 10 contracts, John Paul traded with a result of over $2,000. This was accomplished using the Atlas Line software and the Trade Scalper strategy. These methods can be purchased separately or can be acquired through enrollment in the Mentorship Program.

For the E-mini S&P, the Atlas Line provides an entry signal around 10 a.m. US/Eastern. However, March 11, 2014 was an exception. Price danced around the Atlas Line around this time without having two consecutive closing signals above or below (which would normally generate an entry). The entry signal fired off at the close of the 10:15 a.m. candle, suggesting a Long entry of 1875. This means John Paul needed to buy the market at that price. He entered with a limit order which told the market he wanted to get in at the specified price. Price rose upwards for a while and then dropped again, tagging the entry price and filling the order. Now that he was in a trade, it was a matter of waiting and managing the the trade. You might notice NinjaTrader’s Chart Trader was not turned on right away, but you can see the profit target indicated by the green bar in the DOM window.

The second trade, over an hour later in the day, told John Paul to go short at 1874.50. Three ticks was the profit target. Although he could have gone for six ticks, he already made some profit for the day and decided on a more conservative approach. This one was filled much more quickly.

Stay tuned for the upcoming Trade Scalper videos were you can see the remaining two trades!

John Paul shows his price action trading setup with the BarTimer and ATR. You can’t trade the markets the markets are slow compared to when they are fast. For example, he prefers larger stops when the market is fast to avoid getting stopped out prematurely. In many cases, overnight trading leads to choppy back and forth movement, which is very difficult to trade. See an example at about 7:30 in the video. This choppy activity usually corresponds to the ATR. If the ATR value is too low, it’s not worth trading. You’re better off waiting for the market to wake up as seen around the 11:00 mark.

Starting around 11:20, you can learn how to trade news events. It’s better to stay out while the market is chaotic for five or 10 minutes and then re-enter when the volatility subsides.

At 13:00, take a look at the Atlas Line orders for the day. Besides the long and short order signals, there is a bias. When price is above the line, look for buying (long) opportunities. The opposite is true when price plots below the Atlas Line. At 20 minutes in, John Paul shows how the Atlas Line can be used for overnight trading (by adding another Atlas Line). You can set the MarketOpen parameter to begin at the time the desired market opens (e.g. “300″ for 3:00 a.m. Euro (6E) market open for trading in the US/Eastern time zone).

Tune in at 27:00 for the ABC method. On Feb. 24, 2014, the C part of the day offered a breakout entry opportunity to the short side. Multiple ABC trading days are discussed along with the basics of price action.

Today’s Trade Scalper Trades on the ES and 6E

Take a look at the above charts from today, February 14, 2014, and you’ll notice some very good long and short trades on the ES (E-mini S&P 500) and the 6E (Euro FX). Let’s be clear – what you’re looking at his the Trade Scalper software that comes with the Trade Scalper course. The Trade Scalper software is programmed for NinjaTrader only. Don’t have NinjaTrader or want to use NinjaTrader alongside your main platform? We can provide you with a demo copy of NinjaTrader and a live (demo) data feed for you to use. Don’t want to use NinjaTrader? Don’t worry – you don’t even have to use the Trade Scalper software because you are fully taught the method in the 100 page course plus the free, live training with John Paul. That’s right – you can trade independently of any indicator-type software because the rules are price action based. The live training will occur early next week, so it’s a good idea to purchase now and study up before the live training.

A couple points about what makes the Trade Scalper different from our other methods:

• It uses 1-min charts (short time frame) compared to the 5-min charts the Atlas Line and other strategies use.
• Since it’s a scalping method, you’re looking to get in and out quickly. Less time waiting for trades to occur. More opportunities.
• Tight profit targets and stop loss. Are the markets suddenly slowing down too much for your primary trading method? The Trade Scalper needs less market activity.
• You can trade it almost 24 hours a day.
• Trade nearly any future or currency market.

With purchase, you also get the bonus Floor Trader Secrets Manual. This strategy, also called the X-5, is effective on 5-min E-mini charts. It’s a digital course and you can fully trade it without any software.

Still Think You Can’t Trade the News? Watch What Happened When the New Fed Chair Yellen Spoke…

Click the image below for a larger chart

Janet Yellen, the new Fed chairwoman, spoke on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. EST. When the Fed chair speaks, the market usually gets more volatile for several minutes. You can imagine how traders waited anxiously to see how her first public address would affect the markets.

How could you have traded Tuesday’s news event? Of course, we always recommend that you stay out of the markets when such substantial trading news events occur. However, we teach a free trading strategy that lets you trade these news events. See the video below. For this news event, we waited for two consecutive closing bars above the high of the volatile news bar. The second closing bar occurred at 11:15 a.m., which was our entry long. The proceeding 10 candles on the 5-min chart were bullish to our favor. The profit target, based on the current ATR value, was hit soon after for a total of +2 points ($100 x the amount of contracts you’re trading, excluding slippage and broker or exchange fees).

Atlas Line Live Webinar from February 7, 2014


» Get the Atlas Line «

On January 7, 2014, John Paul conducted a live webinar where he answered questions, went over the Atlas Line, and gave his predictions for the upcoming year.

The presentation starts off with using the Bloomberg Economic Calendar to find out what caused the unusually large price bar at around 8:35 a.m. EST. This move was due to employment news.

At around the 5:00 minute mark, the Atlas Line’s signals are explained. Simply put, when price is above, go for long trades. When below, go with short trades. The real-time value of the ATR determines the profit target and stop loss values. Two closing bars above the plotted line indicate that you should enter the market long (buy the market). The opposite indicates entering short (selling the market). There are three stops used to manage Atlas Line trades: Catastrophic, Time-based and Proof. It’s easy to be objective when you know exactly when to get out of a trade. When entering a trade, you want to see an immediate result. If you’re not getting that result, you need to have an exit plan, in the form of a stop loss. You will take either the profit target or whatever stop loss of the three comes first. Since the profit target and stop loss values are based on the ATR, they are realistic. The target and stop are based on real values the market is capable of producing in real-time conditions. This keeps you emotionally out of the game, objectively in the game, and equipped with a plan.

January Effect Prediction for 2014


With January 2014 coming to a close, John Paul has released the highly anticipated January Effect prediction for how the trading year will trend. Using the January Effect, he is able to determine (with reasonable accuracy) if the E-mini trading price will be higher or lower at the end of 2014 compared to the current trading price at the end of January, 2014.

On January 2, 2014 the E-mini closed at 1837. At the close of January, 2014, the E-mini price was at 1777.00. Since January 2014 was a down month, the January Effect tells us that the end of January 2014 will be below 1777.00 (a down-trending, bearish year).

How can you trade this expected bearish activity? Instead of looking for breakouts like you did in 2013 with the bullish January Effect prediction, look for support and resistance opportunities. In an upcoming video, John Paul will show you how to trade this support and resistance. In the meantime, we encourage you to look back at previous years and see how successful the January Effect was and what trading opportunities were available.

Trading Video Lesson 3 – How to Front-run Trades & Why Use 5-Minute Charts

Why use the 5-min chart?
Regardless of the day trading platform you use, you will have the ability to switch time frames on your chart. For minute-based charts, NinjaTrader provides everything from a 1-min to a Yearly chart. When using a 5-min chart, you have the best of both worlds: a summarized chart (not too much data) and the ability spot moves seen on all the multiples of five minutes (10, 15, 1-hour, etc.). For example, news events will inevitably occur and they can influence price greatly for five to 15 minutes on average. If you’re using a 5-min chart, you can make an immediate decision to enter the market long or short instead of waiting around for the current 15-min (or longer) candle to form.

What is front-running?
Front-running is often used as a negative term in describing brokers and investment institutions who act against the interest of their clients in the markets. At Day Trade to Win, John Paul’s use of the term describes a strategy in which you place your targets and entries one tick in front of everyone else to ensure you get filled. Order fulfillment is on a first-come, first-served basis, so becoming first in line is an effective strategy in getting what you want out of the markets. You can use this strategy with nearly any market.
